Hospital Information

The 226-bed hospital is a full-service acute care and surgical facility that has served Central Washington’s Yakima Valley since 1950.

The Location

Yakima is the county seat of Yakima County, Washington. The city is home to more than 91,000 residents and the metro area has a population of more than 243,000. The city’s economy is powered by commercial agriculture, retail, tourism and the Yakima Training Center, a United States Army training center.  Yakima is served by several major highways, Yakima Transit and McAllister Field airport.

Arts and Entertainment

Yakima Valley may be best known for its craft beverages, thanks to its thriving hops fields, vineyards and apple orchards. The Yakima Valley region produces more than 75 percent of the country’s hops, thanks to the area’s volcanic soil and climate. It is also home to more than 120 wineries as well as local cider-makers and distilleries.

The area produces more than 40 commercial crops, giving residents access to local produce and farmers’ markets throughout the year. Yakima restaurants and chefs frequently incorporate the area’s abundant fresh crops and quality craft beverages into their menus for an outstanding culinary experience.

Yakima Valley residents enjoy 300 sunny days each year, which allow plenty of opportunities to enjoy outdoor adventures like mountain biking, road biking, hiking, fishing, boating, whitewater rafting, river floating, kayaking, skiing, Nordic skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, horseback riding, climbing and wildlife viewing.

The city’s cultural and arts scene is punctuated by the Yakima Valley Museum, downtown’s Capitol Theatre and Seasons Performance Hall, the Allied Arts Center, Larson Gallery, Yakima Symphony Orchestra and Yakima Area Arboretum, to name a few.

Yakima hosts many annual events each year, including the Central Washington State Fair, Yakima Forklife Festival, Fresh Hop Ale Festival, and A Case of the Blues and All That Jazz.


The city is served by the Yakima School District as well as several private schools. Institutions of higher education include Yakima Valley Community College, Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences and Perry Technical Institute.
